It is with immense grief and sadness that we inform the public of the passing of Mr. Nathan Dundas, Manager of Brysons Shipping.
Mr. Dundas joined the staff of Brysons in 1991 and very early demonstrated a penchant for detail, impressive customer care skills, astute management and leadership abilities which led to his promotion to the position of Shipping Manager. Mr Dundas was a dedicated and valuable employee and a consummate professional who discharged his responsibilities with distinction. He remained an employee of Brysons for 30 years and has served as a Director since 2005.
As the Chairman of the Antigua and Barbuda Cruise Tourism Association he led many pioneering initiatives and possessed a keen understanding of the challenges of the sector which quickly garnered enviable respect from his regional and international colleagues. He was a committed and outspoken advocate for Antigua and Barbuda’s cruise tourism sector and promoted Antigua and Barbuda as a premier cruise destination to all shipping lines, thereby ensuring that more cruise ships called at our ports every season.
Mr. Dundas served as a board member of the Caribbean Shipping Association for many years and was respected both regionally and internationally as one of the sharpest minds in the Shipping Industry.
Mr. Dundas passed away in the United States late Saturday night. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Andrea, his son Brandon, and his extended family as well as the Brysons family, particularly the staff of Brysons Shipping at this extremely difficult time.
The public is further advised that Mr. Patrick Ryan will assume direct responsibilities for the Shipping Department.
May his soul Rest in Peace.
John C. Warren
Geo. W. Bennett Bryson & Co. Ltd – Chairman of the Board
